    Default Defiant N3158??

    Hello gents, can anyone help identify this aircraft? It crashed on the 13th February 1941 approaching RAF Cosford, althought not badly damaged. The accident card seems to have the serial as N3918 while another source gives it as N3158.

    Neither are Defiants though! Can anyone rustle up the right serial?

    Cheers, Tom

    It would appear to be N3518, it is recorded in The Defiant File as "stalled on approach to Cosford after ferry flight by No.2 FPP" the date against it is 13/02/1941.
